"Danville" as written by Christy Leigh Seamans and Chris Knight....
Let him sit in the kitchen
Till the red rooster crows
And drink bootleg whiskey
Till he loses control
Let him find him somebody
He can treat like a dog
Let the house fall down
And let him grow old

[Chorus]
But she ain't goin' back
She ain't goin' back
She ain't goin' back to Danville
Till shes dead

He got the whole town believing
That she was to blame
This towns filled with people
With his last name

Shes heard that the devil
Lives way down below
But the devils little brother
Lives on old Danville road

[Chorus]

Now her mommas tombstone
Sits high on a hill
She been gone seven years
She misses her still

But one fine day
They'll be together again
Shell go back to Danville
If they'll let her in

[Chorus: x2]

    My InterpretationThis song is pretty strait forward by I think it is about a man and woman who were once lovers but the man beat the woman so she left the town of danville to get away from her abusive partner. The only time she will return to danvile is when she has died and will be buried in danville because that is her home town.

    This song is very slow and melodic and gives you a good sense of how this woman feels.
